Southern Frontiers, A Journey Across the Roman Empire
CULTURAL PORTRAIT 2010 HARD COVER 272 PAGES
The celebrated photographer, Don McCullin, with historian Barnaby Rogerson in tow, charts a journey through the ancient Roman ruins of Baalbek in Lebanon and Palmyra in Syria, across North Africa to Morocco, Algeria and Libya, including the magnificent Leptis Magna, capturing archaeological sites and landscapes in stunning black-and-white photographs. Rogerson supplies the illuminating accompanying text. Friend of Eric Newby, Bruce Chatwin and Norman Lewis, McCullin may be better known in Britain but even if you haven't scene his famous war photographs (or those of the Beatles), you'll appreciate his eye for drama and light.
